Ah, Valentine’s Day! A day of love, happiness and a popular day for marriage proposals. People get swept up in the sheer romance of the day and take advantage of the beautiful flowers, Valentine’s weekend away deals and the chocolate. You must never forget the chocolate!
If you are going with the romantic flow and want to get down on one knee and pop the big question, there’s a lot to consider and think about! The when, the where, the how-big-is-the-ring – all these are questions are ones that are important when you want to propose. There are so many types of proposals, from the truly outlandish to the sweet and simple. You’ll know the type of person you hope to marry (we hope!) so you’ll know whether you should be making a public gesture with sky writing and a mariachi band. Others? Well they may prefer a private, more intimate setting where it’s just the two of you facing the world together. So, how to conquer this mammoth question?
Ladies, don’t feel left out. You could always propose to your other half instead of him proposing to you! Proposals are a memorable experience and everyone wants to look back and smile at their special day. It’s important to remember though, that no matter how many special touches you put on your proposal, the only thing that matters is the person you want to marry. Make sure that they are the right one. Make sure that you have the right ring and make sure you propose for the right reasons. It’s all about timing and having everything lined up correctly so by ensuring you’re doing your proposal in a memorable way, you’ll always have something to look back on in years to come.
